with the german chancellor angela merkel. the u.s. is warning of tougher sanctions against russia over ukraine. the president saying the preference is a diplomatic solution but if that doesn't happen the next step is more sanctions. he says he understands the concerns of some european countries but he's confident the u.s. and the european union will stand together. >> the goal is not to punish russia. the goal is to give them an incentive to choose the better course. and that is to resolve these issues diplomatically. and i think we are united on that front. within europe, within the eu, i'm sure there has to be extensive consultations. you've got 28 countries and some are more vulnerable than others to potential russian retaliation. we have to take those into account. not every country is going to be in exactly the same place. what has been remarkable is the degree to which all countries agreed that russia's violated international law, violate ed territorial sovereignty of a country in europe and there has to be consequences for that. >> reports of helicopters being shut down and heavy gunfir

and then the lady behind him. >> hi, i'm ira >> gorbachev did raise the question shouldn't russia join nato also, and james baker pooh-poohed him, and anytiming having made a mistake, james baker later regreated that and -- regretted that and said he should have engaged gorbachev on that question. one of the first acts of the yeltsin government in december 1991 was to raise the question of nato membership, the foreign ministry later said it was a mistranslation, but officials assured me that, in fact, it was a true translation, they just had to withdraw it because it became such a political embarrassment for yeltsin and if or you personally -- and for you personally. i am wondering how much damage has been done by our lack of engagement with russia on the question of a serious integration with russia and its interests with nato. >> first of all, i cannot agree more on your statement, thank you so much. [laughter] and secondly, i agree with the assumption of your question, yes. that's the point, and that's where i technically agree, and i see the point of putin when he says that we had kind of, w
stiffer sanctions, sanctions on the various sectors of russia's economy, the mining sector and believes that would have a bigger bite than sanctions implemented so far which largely target individuals. russia has been hesitant to move forward with stiffer sanctions because they are far more dependent on russia for things like oil than the united states is. so that is where the divide comes in. president obama has said he doesn't want to move forward without his european allies because he wants to present a united front to russia. the u.s. calculation being that that is far stronger than if the u.s. were to move forward unilaterally with those sectoral sanctions but germany is the linchpin here. so president obama will be trying to do some arm twisting. as you say, another issue that might come up the nsa, the two leaders could discuss the fact that german chancellor merkel was quite upset by the revelations that her cell phone had been happened. but the issue of ukraine will overshadow all of the other issues. >> and jean cummings, you've covered economics in the business world for so m

have yet to see a single case brought against russia in the world trade organization. this is the case despite the fact that the administration told congress during consideration of pntr that one of the major benefits of having russia in the wto would be our ability to bring hem to dispute -- bring them to dispute settlement. i'm also disappointed that the president refuses to bring a wto case existence india for its -- against india for its continuing efforts to undermine the u.s. in intellectual property rights. india knows better, and we ought to be forceful about in this, and i think it would help them as well. this failure to act with regard to india exemplifies a pattern within this administration when it comes to enforcing american intellectual property rights. countries around the world are taking note of the president's failure to act in the this area, and this is feeding the perception that they can refuse to protect and even actively violate u.s. intellectual property rights with impunity. finally, i am deeply concerned about the institution. ambassador froman, i appreciate

gets a quarter of its gas from russia and half of that that was really news to me have a that passes through ukraine. we remember that in 2009 early in 2009, the pipelines were shut down to ukraine. what was the reason for that again? >> there was a price dispute between -- ukraine had not paid its debt and the russians shut down the gas supply to ukraine first and then for the rest of south eastern europe through ukraine a few days later. >> so that didn't have much of an effect on europe at the time because of the shorter rations because it had a tremendous effect, both 13 days of no gas in the dead of winter, and chip uses gas primarily for eating so the timing was not accidental. >> what did it do come increase the price? i mean, was there a scarcity going to your? >> it lasted 20 days in total, 13 days for most of europe and as a result what it did was drove home the realization of the publicly that europe has in its reliance on russian gas and its need for diversification. because it only lasted 13, the pain was a short-lived. >> does that mean that europe is less dependent on
